GAME Of Thrones star Maisie Williams is to lead the cast of Sky Original comedy series Two Weeks To Live.

Written by Gaby Hull (Cheat), the six part series will follow Kim Noakes (Williams), a young misfit who lives a secluded country life.

When an unlikely prank goes wrong, she finds herself on the run from a murderous gangster and the police with a massive bag of stolen cash.

With the survival techniques she has picked up from her upbringing, however, she does her best to survive and turn the tables on her pursuers.

As yet, no further details of the supporting cast have been revealed.

Williams commented: “Looking forward to getting into something new, I think Two Weeks To Live has really great potential and I want to make something incredible with this wonderful team!”

Jon Mountague, Director of Comedy at Sky, added: “With Maisie Williams leading from the front, Two Weeks To Live is to die for. Bold, British and very, very original, we can’t wait to wow audiences with even more great comedy.”

Two Weeks To Live will air on Sky One and streaming service NOW TV in the UK and Ireland next year (2020).

Upcoming Sky Originals include Catherine The Great, starring Helen Mirren; Code 404 with Stephen Graham and Daniel Mays; Brassic with Michelle Keegan; Intelligence, fronted by David Schwimmer and Nick Mohammed; Hit Men, ‘Mel and Sue’s’ first scripted comedy series, Breeders with Martin Freeman and series two of In The Long Run with Idris Elba.
